Going to buy an electric bike. Budget is 1500. Looking at Halfords, eurocycle and decathlon. But I don't have a clue what the difference is other than the battery claims. One thing I'd like is ease to charge / replace battery if needed. It's for commuting to work. Any advice?
Maybe add a couple of hundred to your budget, which will get you something with Bosch componentry (motor/controller/battery pack), for durability, build quality and ease of dealing with any aftersales issues, if they should arise.
You may have made up your mind already but would consider a DIY e-bike?
You could get something like a trek marlin 5 and then add a aftermarket kit to it. It may not look as good as an e-bike from a manufacturer, but I do feel it is better value for money, especially if you don't want to be limited by the 25 KPH limit.
Probably cheaper from the likes of AliExpress but Amazon do have faster shipping.
